I have a basenji chihuahua mix and he only barks when other dogs pass by the yard otherwise he is very quiet. Frequently he makes the classic yodel sound when he yawns. He has proven to be very difficult to train and is quite stubborn. If you scold him he will growl at you. He loves children and is very attached to me. He loves the cats, could care less about squirrels and is quite the bird killer. He is very much a home body, he happens to have a large fenced in yard and runs the fence line a lot. He is a very fast runner. He doesn’t like to go out too much, makes him anxious. We went camping once, he hated every bit of it, but he did love hiking.
